Toner Take-Back Service

Our free, simple to use, responsible returns programme.
Toner Take-Back Service

All Kyocera devices are designed with the environment in mind.

We aim to minimise the impact of our products on the planet by reducing the quantity of raw materials contained within them. Kyocera’s approach to printer design and engineering reduces the number of components in the ECOSYS toner cartridge system by more than 85% on average, consequently reducing the manufacturing and recycling impact of the device.

Kyocera currently offer a returns service for all used, genuine KYOCERA toner cartridges. The moment your empty ECOSYS or TASKalfa consumables enter our system, Kyocera and our recycling partner will manage everything from pick-up to processing toner plastics into graded plastic beads.

After separating the cartridges into individual components, the polymers in the toner cartridge are separated and then granulated and prepared for reuse as “recyclate” which can be added to brand new materials to manufacture a variety of products.

By participating in our Toner Take-Back Service you contribute to reducing waste and energy consumption for a better environment and a better world. The service follows Kyocera's philosophy of always considering our impact on the environment.

Our toner cassettes and product packaging are 100% recyclable. Kyocera even ID mark product parts for easy recycling.
